Dragon’s Dogma Finally Coming to PS4 and One

Posted in News with tags , , on May 23, 2017 by Rabidgames

First Final Fantasy XII, then Star Ocean: Till the End of Time, and now, Dragon’s Dogma will come to the next-gen consoles! Fuck yeah! About time! Fuck yeah! Finally! Yes! Yes! Yes!

In autumn this year, Capcom finally – seeing reason – will re-release Dragon’s Dogma, oh no, not just Dragon’s Dogma, it will be the all-DLC-including Dark Arisen. A move fans of the game have been waiting for since the release of the PC version, and now it finally happens!

Now, re-releases are not always great, and by the tail of a chimera, if Capcom fucks this one up, there’ll be hell to pay, but while Dragon’s Dogma was great, Dragon’s Dogma with improved graphics a stable frame rate and less bugs will be even greater! And if you’re still not convinced, who doesn’t want to listen to our pawns and wisdom such as “Even in numbers, a weakling is a weakling still” or the all-time favourite “It bears the head of a cock”?

Rabidgames is happy: Finally, finally, finally! Fuck words. Let’s drink to the good news!

Star Ocean: Till The End Of Time Will Be Here Very Soon!!!

Posted in News with tags , , on May 18, 2017 by Rabidgames

Star Ocean: Till The End Of Time will hit the PSN Store in North America and Europe next Tuesday, 23 May. BOOM! Square Enix just released that bombshell out of nowhere, and while the confirmed US price of $21 is not exactly cheap, this great game will be worth it!

Now, in case you don’t know why Till The End Of Time is loved by many JRPG fans, well, how does mixing a great deep and tactical combat system with a part sci-fi/part fantasy story and then turning everything upside down with a big twist in the middle of the game sound?

Rabidgames throws money to the screen: Shut up and take the money already, Square!

Bulletstorm will be Back – And the Duke is on Board!

Posted in News with tags , , , on April 3, 2017 by Rabidgames

2017 has already brought forth a plethora of great games – from RPGs to sandboxes, from Zelda to Horizon Zero Dawn. Sadly though, there’s neither time nor money to play them all! And yet, the Bulletstorm remake might be exactly what you need if you’re in for some fast-paced, easy-going entertainment!

To sum up Bulletstorm, imagine playing Doom while getting rewarded for killing enemies creatively. There are countless ways to kill them – well, that’s a lie, there are “only” 131 so-called skillshots, including gems like “Kill an enemy by flinging them into a cactus.” or “Kill an enemy by shooting him in the ass.”

As usual, the Bulletstorm Full Clip Edition will include all previous DLC packs, but there will also be something pretty special, sadly only as pre-order bonus or at least perhaps included in the day 1 edition: You can play the entire game as the most obnoxious and hilarious hero of gaming – Duke Nukem himself! And not just that, there’ll be an entire script just for playing as the Duke!

Rabidgames grins: Bulletstorm and the Duke – that’s a wet dream cum true, a marriage forged in hellfire! And as Doom has proven, there is still room for arcade shooting in today’s gaming. And as fast-paced and gory as Doom was, Bulletstorm has even more sadistic pleasures and bodily explosions in stock! See you soon, and may the bullets fly!

Mass Effect Andromeda – The Best Comedy Game?

Posted in Gaming these days ..., News with tags , on March 19, 2017 by Rabidgames

So, we’ve heard and read a lot about Mass Effect Andromeda, right? And after digesting all the bad face animations, the bugs and glitches and the bad dialogues, many are still on the fence. But perhaps we’re all looking at it the wrong way. Perhaps the game is comedy. Just watch the video, and you’ll see it could very well be true:

Seriously now, what the fuck? This is pure comedy gold! Andromeda might not work as a traditional Bioware game, but maybe it’ll work just fine as a Mass Effect parody!

Rabidgames has decided: Pre-ordered! For the laughs.

 

Mass Effect Andromeda or Bioware’s (Titan)Fall?

Posted in Gaming these days ..., News with tags , , on February 25, 2017 by Rabidgames

The more news come in about the upcoming Mass Effect Andromeda, the less Rabidgames likes it. Coming from someone who has the collectors edition of the entire Mass Effect trilogy, it says a lot.

Take this Eurogamer article for example: It’s all about dynamic fighting, jumping and quick and painless exploration now it seems. Even worse, EA (Bioware seems only remotely responsible for Andromeda) even removed the power wheel!

So what’s left? A fast-paced, potentially brainless shooter with small and probably linear areas, and sex with aliens because that’s what Mass Effect is all about, right? Fucking hell, Bioware, be at least decent enough to call this game “Sexy Aliens & Titanfall’s Effect“!

From the looks of it, Andromeda could still well be an interesting and good game, but rather a good shooter than a good RPG. After all, what’s left that made Mass Effect 1 great? Not much it seems. It shouldn’t come as a surprise as Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3 already went down Shooter Lane anyway. It really seems Inquisition was Bioware’s farewell, and mind you, even Inquisition is just a mere shadow compared to the gleaming success and deep RPG mechanics of The Witcher 3 now.

Rabidgames puts the money back in this pocket: Relationships evolve. Bioware devolves. Maybe Andromeda manages to define itself in the new direction of the studio, but new directions have destroyed many relationships. Comes end of March, we’ll see if there are still enough sparks left to rekindle the fire in our hearts.

The Insane March Gaming Crunch of 2017

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , on February 10, 2017 by Rabidgames

Usually, we see tons of games released from October to December. But this year, Match seems to be the new November, with quite a few promising titles lined up on the grid. Let’s have a look at a few of them:

March will start with the PS4 exclusive Horizon Zero Dawn where set in the future, fighting robot animals and mechanic dinosaurs to survive is humanity’s task. Scope and depth are hard to judge for now, but the future past (or past future?) is surely an interesting setting as you can see for yourself.

One week later, Ghost Recon: Wildlands will hit the stores. As Rabidgames has pointed out, Wildlands will be a day 1 purchase because of the beta impressions, so no need to go into detail about the symbiosis of Phantom Pain, Mercenaries, Just Cause and Narcos. Chances are there will also be an open beta shortly before launch!

A few days later, Nier: Automata will arrive. The demo you should totally play promised quite a few interesting things, and the mix of RPG, 2D and 3D brawling and shooting coupled with typical Japanese storytelling surely is intriguing. If for whatever reason (like maybe you don’t have a PS4) you can’t play the demo, that’s what it looks like:

You’re still hungry for games? Well, how about some RPG action, or more precisely, Mass Effect Andromeda? Now we don’t know much about exploring our neighbour galaxy yet apart from our squad, the bad guys and a vague story, and it could well be that Andromeda is more shine than substance, but hey, who can say to have no interest in another Mass Effect? Although the interests of some people are rather weird

For completeness’ sake, Dark Souls 3’s add-on The Ringed City should also be mentioned here. After all, there might be a few of you masochistic souls out there who want to die many times once more.

If you’re in for some delicious swearing, better have South Park: The Fractured But Whole on your radar! If you pre-order, you can also get the hilarious successor The Stick of Truth. But be careful, some retailers give it to you in the box so you get it only by release, not as a download code as soon as you pre-order!

Technically not Match any more, but on 4 April, Persona 5 will ask you to revisit school, but as usual, there will be quite a few extracurricular activities of the RPG realm type. If there’s some time or money left …

Rabidgames wonders: Not only are these plenty of games, no, they all are time-consuming games as well! It’s probably one of the biggest first world problem injustices; either you’re a student and have plenty of time but hardly the money to buy the games you want to play, or you have the cash to buy them but never enough time to play them.

Where are the damn GOTY Awards?

Posted in Gaming these days ..., News with tags , , on February 8, 2017 by Rabidgames

Some of you might have wondered what’s going on with Rabidgames’ 2016 Game of the Year Awards, the annual personal hitlist and shitlist of what’s great and what’s crap. Or perhaps not. Anyway, it’ll take a bit because of a simple reason.

Remember the hate Hitman got for its episodic content shenanigans? And rightly so? Well, Rabidgames has just bought the physical and complete version of the game, as it is indeed a good game and worthy to be included in the GOTY Awards. Spoilers: The fucking unnecessary, unreasonable and stupid forced “you MUST be online to unlock shit” will be mentioned.

Another spoiler – if you’re looking for Overwatch in the Awards, look no further. The game won’t be there. At all. Now, this doesn’t mean it’s necessarily a bad game, but there are games that hold exactly zero interest for Rabidgames, and Overwatch is one of them. It happens. It got enough awards somewhere else anyway. The same goes for games like Dark Souls 3 and Titanfall 2, just to name a few.

Rabidgames digresses: Enough spoilers already! There should be some suspense left. Stay tuned, folks. The Awards will be there soon!
